Re: From HMC to No-HMC?



fixed

Just for the archives and future browser's sake:
Moving the jumpers
Moving and then returning the jumpers
Moving them again
None of the above did a full reset of the FSP, it still said "hmc=0"
on the front panel.
I had to manually go into the ASMI and do a "Factory Configuration"
(and for good measure i did it full, fsp,fw,pci)
And only then did the system actually change to no-hmc mode.
I dont know why because i remember the service manual where it
indicated the same as Dr Franken.

In any case, i left it adding the 4328's to the ASP so i have a good
120minutes for lunch.

Best Regards,

Roberto

In this case, it's a simple 525, one partition, LS on the integrated
5709. I had more trouble remembering that i had to both change the
partitions "console" iop and then actually change the console type on
DST than i can have moving those switches, i really hoped there was an
easier way.
But yes, multicontroller systems or multi partition systems converted
to single partition should take care with the LS location.
Thanks for all!

You might want to check that the load source disk is on the default controller.

Hello all,


I've seen some cases where new POWER systems come pre-tested from IBM
configured to use HMC and it was a pain to change back. Now, how do
you change the service processor to stop being managed by the HMC? (in
this case i have a 525 with 1 partition that i want to move beyond the
reach of the HMC that used to control it). I think it had to do with
doing a factory reset on the ASMI but i figured i'd rather ask first
before having to re-configure the Service Processor...
